[movies] Nays from the NYT

I was so looking forward to the new film releases this weekend, but the NYT reviews in tomorrow's edition are really just all thumbs-down. Nay on "Robots," perh. because it's neither Pixar nor anime, nay on the new Bruce Willis, and very mixed for the new Kevin Costner. NYT: not nec. your friend, Hollywoodies, hehe, esp. regarding Costner's "Upside of Anger." Maybe postponement from the Oscar season was a good choice after all -- maybe.

Synopsis of "She's All Angles, He's Got Curves" review by A. O. Scott:
"The upside of "The Upside of Anger," a deeply flawed attempt to marry midlife romantic comedy with domestic farce, is that it provides a platform for Kevin Costner and Joan Allen to do some marvelous work. Both performances are somewhat familiar: Mr. Costner, once again, is an athlete past his prime, and Ms. Allen is a brittle, unhappy suburban housewife, but the actors slip into their characters with ease and wit, and complement each other beautifully as they explore a haphazard friendship that turns into a love affair.

The downside is that the director, Mike Binder, does not give them enough of a dramatic context to work in, and undermines their efforts with a surprise ending that very nearly destroys the whole movie. Alicia Witt, Erika Christensen, Evan Rachel Wood and Keri Russell play Ms. Allen's daughters, but their characters are as thinly conceived as figures in a television pilot, and it is hard to believe that the four of them and Ms. Allen add up to a family."
